Orchestra in Residence


Orchestra in Residence

We are delighted to announce our partnership with the London Mozart Players as Orchestra In Residence from this year. Going forward, LMP will perform twice during each Festival and will lead our education projects with local schools.

Artistic Director, Andrew Jenkins said: ‘It is a pleasure to work with such a prestigious and talented ensemble as LMP. Over the next few years, we will collaborate on bringing our audiences some fantastic concerts, including our journey towards the Holst150 in 2024. They share our commitment to nurturing young talent, both performers and composers, and plans are already afoot for some exciting concerts in 2023.

Chief Executive of LMP, Flynn Le Brocq commented: ‘I’m thrilled that LMP are joining Thaxted as Orchestra in Residence, expanding on our current residences at Fairfield Halls, St John’s Upper Norwood and Hastings. It’s such a pleasure to be working with Andrew and the team over the next year as we continue building on our thriving and ambitious relationship.’

Join us for our opening night concert on Friday 17th June, where Howard Shelley joins LMP for Shostakovich’s dynamic 2nd Piano Concerto.
